“I think the most fascinating aspect of working here is the multitude of individuals and constituencies that we interact with, from entrepreneurs, executives and employees at portfolio companies, to investors, service providers, customers, and other venture capitalists. As a VC you’re effectively creating and nurturing an entire ecosystem from all these moving parts.”

In this role, Troy oversees the operations, finance and administration for Madrona and the venture funds under Madrona's management. “Madrona’s success is driven by its culture, which is not easily defined but is essentially a few dozen smart and extremely dedicated people thinking about how to make our portfolio companies a success and then making it happen.”
